This study examined the effects of clarification training on conversational breakdowns and repair strategies of 3 school aged children with ASD. Clarification training provided to the participants during playing the barrier games. The results found that the occurrence of conversational breakdown was decreased in terms of overall and types. The occurrence and appropriateness rates of repair strategies were increased among all participants. Based on the results, 'clarification training' used in this study can be an effective method to train children with ASD for appropriate repair strategies in conversation.
